PROVO, Utah — Former Cougar golfer and assistant coach Juli Erekson will return to the BYU women’s golf coaching staff as assistant coach.
“I am thrilled for the opportunity to rejoin BYU athletics, coach Carrie Roberts and the women’s golf team,” Erekson said. “I have so much admiration for this institution and for Carrie and her vision that has led to great success. I am grateful to be a part of it and eager to get to work.”
